trying to escape law enforcement. here's how it played out. around 10:00 p.m. last night, the suspects robbed a store. they then proceeded to fatally shoot an m.i.t. security officer and hijack a mercedes suv. the owner of that vehicle was held hostage for half an hour while the two brothers pulled $800 out of an atm. they released the owner of the mercedes unharmed. police chased the suspects into watertown, where this shootout took place. the suspects exchanged fire with police and threw explosives towards them. at one point, tamerlan sarn ev got out of the car wearing an ied strapped to his chest and was shot by police. his body was run over by dzhokah tsarnaev as he fled the scene. at present the manhunt continues. the police are looking for a younger brother and a possible accomplice. let's bring in nbc justice correspondent, pete williams. this is a quickly developing situation. how many people are the police looking for right now? >> i think they're not sure. i think we can say probably three. dzhokah tsarnaev, the person who is the man with the white hat and the marathon bombin
talked about the fact and law enforcement talked about the fact that they'd been through about 60% to 70% of the entire area. i'm assuming that in the hours since then, it's now, of course, 4:05 eastern time, but they made progress close to 100%. >> reporter: yeah, but what's the area? remember, the entire city is in lockdown now. they have told everybody in boston not to leave their homes, not to open their doors, except to law enforcement officers. so while they might be able to inspect the immediate area around here in watertown, it seems a herculean task to be able to do that for the entire metropolitan region that's essentially in lockdown right now. look, there's a massive police and military presence, actually, here, actually, it's right behind me, the staging area is right behind where i'm standing here at the parking lot of the watertown arsenal here. we've had early this morning convoys of military humvees, bus loads of police and state troopers coming in here and assembling for what we thought was going to be some sort of massive confrontation or assault here. we had blackhawk
of the resources from law enforcement and military on the ground and some we can see here. helicopters from police and 50 guardsmen and more military humvees coming in earlier and dozens of law enforcement if not hundreds and vehicles scattered across water and the city. is this enough based on what you understand they are trying to do at the moment? >> it's a tremendous deployment of resources and certainly you have to defer to the judgment of the officials on the ground if it's the right amount. obviously the more, the better in this type of situation. you have to look at the possibility as michael mentioned earlier that there could be additional devices placed around the greater boston area. you also have to look at any other potential components to what could be a broader conspiracy. we don't know the steps they took to first deal with him and try to get him to surrender if he is holed up and secondly to understand where there might be additional devices around the greater boston area and third, to identify any other individuals who might be in any way associated with the brothers is where the
imaginable law enforcement vehicle today come through this area as they were doing those house to house searches on 20 blocks here in watertown and we saw that increased police presence but they weren't walking nearly as quickly nor with as much purpose as we have seen in the last couple of minutes. clearly there is something going on. there were reports of shots fired at another area of watertown not where we are standing right now. there are a lot more people on the streets and we're not just talking about law enforcement. that's because as soon as we heard at that press conference after 6:00 p.m. that the stay indoors had been lifted, we saw so many people going out on the streets. they are bringing their dogs out for a walk and as those vehicles are pealing around the corner and down the street behind me, there were a number of people gathered around the street corner. they started cheering, clapping, saying go get him. where exactly they were headed, that is being looked into. we don't want to dive into speculation at this point but as you can see, there is a lot of focus from peop
-off from the local community to law enforcement. so we have focused so much on specific ethnic groups since 9/11 in terms of potential threats. maybe we need to open the aperture a little bit. not because the communities pose a threat to the united states but because there are individuals we need to pay attention to. >> when you talk about other groups, not al qaeda but other overseas groups that you might want to investigate. other people in the new york times are saying there might have been other parts to this attack. there is a significant arsenal assembled by these guys. are you comfortable this is a two-person plot or that there may have been some other people we haven't yet seen who are advising or perhaps even funding part of this? >> i think there is no doubt that because of the seven or eight ieds that they've discovered since the capture of tsarnaev, they were planning additional attacks. the question is what were they and what would they be? >> my guess and this is a semieducated guest. we'll find other people who were tangentially involved. unwitting accomplices, providing logi
god, and our responding brothers of law enforcement were able to help us keep him in this area. >> by the time he jumps out of the car, he is about 300 yards from your officers. >> right. >> who now have to make the decision about chasing him or taking care of the officer down. and what do your officers do? >> the transit officer, it was a two man cruiser, we are giving aid, trying to get an ambulance to get him to the hospital which we know he needs desperately. they focus on that and other responding officers tried to pursue the second brother. >> i think people have been wondering how did this guy escape into the darkness. so what we know is he was about 300 yards away from the officers at the time he jumps out of the car. >> right. >> then is off into the darkness. >> exactly. >> and the people who are responding are not watertown police officers, the extra troops who were coming in are not from watertown, do not know the streets, and for them, there's a struggle about exactly how to coordinate the spot where he got out of the car and started running. >> right. you can imag
. but as the colonel said, because of that extraordinary collaboration and cooperation by all of these law enforcement resources and assets and more to the point people, professionals, who brought their "a" game, we have a suspect in custody tonight. >> the community stood strong. it was a call from a resident in watertown. we asked you to remain vigilant, and you did. we got that call and we got the guy. and so we can't thank you enough. you've done everything and more than we've asked. extremely proud of law enforcement today and what we've accomplished. >> this whole ordeal started monday with the bombing attack at the finish line of the boston marathon. three people were killed, more than 170 injured. the suspect's older brother died early friday morning following a shootout with police. the two men are also suspected of killing an m.i.t. police officer, 26-year-old sean collier, who was sitting in his patrol car. now, police hope that the surviving suspect will be able to give them some critical information about a possible motive and whether any more people were involved. nbc's katy tur has been
in watertown in a staging area with law enforcement. the entire city of boston is now being asked to shelter in place, as law enforcement officials methodically search for the second suspect and possibly concerned about a third. joining me live in watertown, katy tur, describe the scene that you're witnessing right now. >> it has got an lot more act aive here in the past few minutes. a police helicopter that is circling this area for the last 20 minutes or so. they are circling the area which is right over here, diagonal from where i am. we did see police cruisers speed that way and arm aered vehicles speed that way and we are hearing reports of some activity. we have reporters that are closer to the scene and they are saying that it does appear a bomb squad is going into a house. it's much more active than it was a few minutes ago. to give you an idea of where we are in relation to how everything has been happening. the shootout that happened early this morning happened in this general vicinity happened a couple blocks from here. that's where the suspect was killed and the second suspect fl
penalty, is that what you're saying? >> reporter: sure. because then he's got cooperating with law enforcement, but he's also lost his leverage by saying this. it is in his interest to be able to tell them something. >> you think a lawyer, michael, would have told him to hold out until he got a deal? >> reporter: absolutely. absolutely. the one thing a lawyer is going to try to do at this point is to save his life. the one way to do that is show cooperation by pointing the finger at somebody else or helping them find somebody else. look, i don't take these statements at face value, just, you know, just to be clear. you know, he could well be protecting somebody. clearly there were others who they were talking to. it's hard to imagine the two of them just simply became radicalized by themselves without any encouragement from anybody else. >> that surprises me, too. >> reporter: seems there was an accomplice in the plot. and also, we have the statements from the uncle who says there was somebody who radicalized the older brother. >> so let me thank you very much. >> reporter: that's
today to praise law enforcement and those involved in tracking tsarnaev down. >> americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately, that's what we'll remember from this week. that's what will remain, the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity, and love. >> authorities caught up with the suspect after a tip from a watertown resident. he was hiding in a boat parked outside a home. he is now in a boston hospital and nbc's ron allen is joining me from there. ron, with a good afternoon to you, let's get the very latest on his condition. are you getting word from the hospital or are they staying somewhat silent on that? >> reporter: absolutely silent, alex. they're basically saying ask the fbi, ask the police about that, and they are saying nothing as well. it's a very tight lid on top of any information about him so far today. that could change perhaps, but you have to understand and, of course, you do, that this is a very, very delicate and sensitive situation and so it seems unlikely that the doctors are going to tell us a lot about what his condition is, par
and a graduate of harvard law. good to see you, congressman. good morning. >> good to see you. >> the next step of this i guess the more serious step has come from four senators and one congressman so far who are calling for dzhokhar tsarnaev to be called as an enemy combatant. let me play what lindsay graham said about that. >> he should be designated as an enemy combatant and question him for intelligence gathering purposes and find out about terrorist organizations that may exist that he has knowledge of. >> congressman, you releaseded a statement disagreeing with that. why? >> i don't think there's a constitutional legal basis to treat him as an enemy combatanc. i don't see how we can do this constitutionally. i understand that senator graham would like to prolong the interview and we all want to get as much information as we can but there are limits to what we can do and those limits apply in a situation of an american arrested for committing a heinous act like this on american soil so i don't think there's a constitutional legal basis. i also agree with dan collins. there's a lot we can d
